Christmas in Bethlehem off limits for Gaza’s Christians

Catholic procession on Christmas Eve in Bethle...

Yesterday, at a Bible Study I attend, we were studying Isaiah, and a woman commented that in the passage, “God punished the Nation of Israel because they depended on horses and military might instead of Him, then just as they do now”.

Another woman commented, “But, they are still God’s Chosen people”.

This topic never fails to elicit the “Chosen People” comment, it is clearly woven into the fabric of our Evangelical Church narrative.

To bring up the fact that God also loves and cares for Muslims and the Palestinians, as I did yesterday, brought the same response as always, “But, the Jews are God’s Chosen People”!

I wonder how this woman would deal with the fact that hundreds, even thousands of Christians of Palestinian Christians are living under the occupation of Israel?

The leader quickly led us away from that topic..which didn’t surprise me.
